Festival promotes eating local food

2nd annual Idaho’s Bounty event kicks off tonight

Express Staff Writer

The second annual Idaho's Bounty Locavore Festival will take place today through Saturday, May 15, at participating restaurants throughout the Wood River Valley. Each week will highlight an area restaurant that prioritizes using fresh and local food, while offering an Idaho's Bounty special.

Ciro in Ketchum will kick off the week with grilled Idaho trout with a lemon-caper beurre blanc, roasted M&M Heath new potatoes and Purple Sage flat-leaf spinach.

The following week, Globus in Ketchum will offer black beluga lentil salad and braised organic Lava Lake lamb massaman curry. Week 3 will feature a local soup and special lunch at Glow Live Food Café in Ketchum and Week 4 will feature the Ketchum Grill, which will offer a flat iron steak from Mesquite Ranch.

Week 5 will feature CK's Real Food in Hailey, which will complete the festival with a slow-food beef brisket from King's Crown Organics. Each menu will be made of the freshest food from local and sustainable growers and producers.


Punchcards will be available at each restaurant and three punches will enter customers into a drawing for a $35 gift certificate at Idaho's Bounty Co-op. Punches from all five restaurants will enter customers into a drawing for a $55 gift certificate. The drawing on May 27 is not limited to Idaho's Bounty members.
